‘The Earth is warming so rapidly, that unless humans can arrest the trend, we risk becoming extinct as a species,’ Professor Berry, University of Canberra, was quoted as saying in SMH on March 31.
It’s worth noting that Professor Berry is a contributor to the IPCC Report 2014.
In our planet’s entire history, the rate of warming has never been as fast as it is today, Professor Berry said.
Please do yourself, your family and other Echo readers a big favour by watching the above 1hr video Arctic Death Spiral and the Methane Time Bomb.
It’s the most important video ever made.
Since the Acrtic’s frozen methane (more than all the crude oil, natural gas and coal in the world combined) is going to burn, either through lightning strike or slowly naturally oxidize to CO2, and since a mere few per cent reduction in oxygen levels are critical for human survival, it is worth noting that scientists have proven that hypoxia (oxygen starvation) was a cause of mammalian death during the Permian extinction, when the frozen methane was also released.
Every time in history that such frozen methane was released, it has caused mass extinctions.
